So, Eight Years of Dating Today My Life 09 JUN 2015

So, eight years of dating today. Well, technically not dating seeing as we did get married in November 2009, but this is the day, way back on 9th of June 2007 that we officially started going out.

Eight years have pretty much flashed by, probably because of all the things we packed into them – moving to Gordon’s Bay, changing jobs, getting married, moving house, falling pregnant, raising Jessica, starting a baking business on the side, and now raising Emily.

In other words, plenty to keep us on our toes and keep moving forward.

Of course, the best part of all of this is that I can’t think of anyone I would rather have beside me for this journey. As always, I can’t stress how much better my life is for having Chantelle as my partner in crime, my best friend, and most important of all, my wife.

My love, the first eight years of our lives being entangled has come and gone – the first eight of without a doubt, many, many more! Love you as always! :)

In case you’re wondering, we opted to actually celebrate this little mini anniversary today. Silly, but nice nevertheless.

We ended up at the gorgeous little eatery called Imibala Restaurant (part of the Imibala Trust children’s fund), a stunning little location on Bright Street in Somerset West (a couple of houses down from Chelsea Village).

It’s only been operating for a handful of months now, but its delightful menu and classy look and feel makes for an instant winning package! Highly recommended. :)
